Part of the Birkhäuser Advanced Texts book series (BAT)


The purpose of this chapter is to present the distributional theory of asymptotic expansions for functions of one variable. This chapter and the next, in which the multidimensional expansions are studied, give the main ideas on the relationship between asymptotic analysis and the theory of distributions.
